RENTON - Even workaholic QB Russell Wilson took some time to get away from the facility and recharge a bit during the Seahawks bye week.
Though it did take some prodding from the staff to get him to leave for a few days.
"They recommended that I get away or whatever," Wilson said. "It was a good thing. Let the body relax and let my mind relax a bit but I'm right back at it."
Wilson has played 14 games this season going back to the preseason, more than any of his seasons in college. Yet, Wilson always played baseball in the spring and is used to always playing a sport at a competitive level. It's kept Wilson fresh for the final six game stretch of the regular season.
"My body feels tremendous, actually," Wilson said. "It feels like I haven't even played a game yet. ...I feel great. The bye week definitely helped but I'll be ready to go."
The bye came at a perfect time for the Seahawks as it allowed everyone to get healthy. Seattle had everyone back at practice Wednesday as the team began game-week preparations for the Miami Dolphins on Sunday.
G James Carpenter was back after finally being cleared after suffering a concussion two weeks ago. LB K.J. Wright had returned to practice on Monday after missing the New York Jets game with a concussion as well. Carpenter had yet to be cleared as of Monday.
Carroll had said previously that Carpenter will move back into the left guard spot as soon as he gets back going. G John Moffitt has filled-in at the position in Carpenter's absence.
With the four-game suspension to S Winston Guy being levied by the league on Tuesday, the Seahawks had an open roster spot to fill. They brought WR Charly Martin back up from the practice squad and added WR Corbin Louks to Martin's spot on the practice squad.
Louks is rookie undrafted free agent from the University of Nevada.
